I had an off…

Last Friday evening, 30th November, while cycling home in the rain I had a slight incident with a sign post. I had just crossed a road at a light controlled crossing and was building up speed when I was blinded by car headlights. I recall seeing this post appear in front of me and the next thing I knew I was laid out on my back some some distance away from on the other side of the post. It took me a couple of seconds to realise what had happened and to check I could still move my arms and legs. A car had stopped and two men helped me up and recover my slightly battered bicycle. After checking I was OK, I thanked them and continued on my way.

The damage: well, one badly bruised shoulder that is still quite painful 4 days later, a bruised knee and arm. I’m still finding bruises in odd places where I either hit the post or bicycle as I came off it. My bicycle came off better with only a broken front lamp bracket and the chain coming off.

Roll on winter when the roads and cycle paths get icy and interesting to ride!
